Losing myself

This is a reflective confession of sorts.

I've been skipping several classes at school lately. I've never been one of the notorious ones in class, but it seems to be heading in that direction.

What does one do when teachers themselves don't make class interesting? I know, the stock answer is that we must study whether we like it or not. But that's like saying, a person should learn violin from a tone-deaf person simply because it's the violin that counts. Honestly, if it wasn't Messiah who preached the Kingdom of Heaven, I think he/she would not have been taken as seriously.

The other thing is that my usage of foul language has somewhat increased.

I don't know why I'm typing this, but...

I suppose I just had to put it down somewhere.

hey ben,you know what? i think its a F6 kinda mentality...some of us can miss up to a week of school..i did.I think it's a warped way to induce self-independence(and a way to make more jobs in society..:P)

Heh, I used to attend two or three (out of nine) periods, spending the rest of my time in the library.

I suppose it would be wrong in pre-F6 years, but now those clear-cut lines have now blurred into a messy blob of grey.

F6 is wickedly strange.

Never been into Form 6, but in my school skipping classes is normal, though I hardly did it. Whenever I stumble into weird areas that I find disturbing to myself, it's normally an excursion into "darkness" perhaps so I might empathize with others who are struggling as well.

i thot it wld be better to answer the question you left on my blog-more jobs in sense that a majority of teachers coming out these days are poorly qualified and unmotivated,i have a teacher who frequently tells us it doesn't matter if we get it or not-she'll still cash her paycheque at the end of the month...i've had really great teachers tho' so..
